After the election I went around to the three polling places around Crystal Lake (the lake) and gathered signs.
I was only going to get the Republican ones, but, remembering what a pain it is to pick up signs, I decided to get the Democrats’, too.
So, I ended up with some for State Rep. candidate Joel Mains, congressional candidate Dennis Anderason and County Board member Paula Yensen.
I contacted the Democratic Party Chairman Mike Bissett and asked what I should do with them.
He told me that I could have his wife Paula’s “for my collection,” that Anderson’s could re-cycled, but that Mains wanted to pick his up.
And he did.
Could this be at indication that Mains wants to have another go at Republican Barb Wheeler?
There was not much of a campaign but yard signs on the part of either candidate this fall, but Wheeler came out on top.
